Slugging last 2 survivors - DO SOMETHING

I'm getting tired of being slugged just for being the last survivor standing and having to decide to heal a downed 3rd survivor or let him/her bleed out just to have a chance. This isn't any fun and usually pisses off both of the last 2 survivors - hit the killer with a substantial BP penalty for leaving people on the ground or let the hatch open early if the 3rd survivor is down for more than 1 minute.

    Umm... have you played much Killer?

    This is feeling like a knee-jerk reaction to being upset. This is really not a good idea, or way to handle it. Sorry man, but it's either Slug you and get the other one or hook you and prolly lose the other one. Most pick the first.

    Also, before you say it, I rarely slug.

    I play killer - heat that, PLAY killer. You are not entitled to a 4K. Slugging is pathetic as well as camping and they did nothing about that either.

    The only thing I'd be okay with is giving Survivors who have been down for a good chunk of the total bleed meter (definitely not less than half) a way to instantly die so they don't have to keep waiting without DCing. Beyond that, slugging for the fourth kill is fair game in my book.

    So. I get that it can be annoying. but I also see where killers come from. Higher ranks/red ranks. You basically are forced to get 4k's to pip sometimes. So there is some "sweat" there. A lot of killers aren't really that sweaty and don't care that much.

    Slugging is useful in situations like:

    You know where the other person is, and can finish the game. (I.E you passed them or literally just see them in front of you etc) That won't take TOO long unless they get looped quite a bit.

    It can be useful yet very inconvenient to the survivor, to slug and when you get picked up by the teammate then the killer knows where both of you are. (Even though some mates will let you bleed out and stand on hatch). However, I sort of disagree with this approach. If I don't know where the survivor is, usually just to save time, I will hook. And hope BBQ or something kicks in to help track them. If the killer knows where hatch is as well. That's also a reason not to slug.

    With that said.... it can be frustrating. And what I recommend, is change your perks. Bring perks like unbreakable and tenacity. It's more frustrating when it feels like its repetitive or every game. It would be nice if a slugged person regains POINTS while they are mending themselves or something. Idk, surviving points... idk haha anything. Just to make it feel like less waste of time, and less frustrating.

    Maybe we can make more perks for slugging type things, I don't know. But for now, I'd recommend change your perks up. Even if it doesn't happen, at least you are ready for when it does.

    Yeah, at higher ranks slugging for the 4K is often necessary to pip now with two emblems working off of hooks. Also, if the killer absolutely demolished a survivor team why shouldn't they get a 4k? Why are survivors entitled to an escape?

    You're complaining about normal intended gameplay.

    DCing is against the rules. Slugging isn't.

    Except disconnecting is against the rules whereas slugging is not.

    If you are just gonna DC why do you even play the game?

    Oh hey, just noticed this.

    So, slugging is pathetic? Its a tactic and needed for "Pipping" that alot of people like. I think it's really rude of you to call anyone that does Slug "pathetic" when all i've seen you do is get on here and whine about things. Slugging is used cause A Killer can not be in 4 places at once, Like survivors can.

    I'm not entitled to crap. I just want a good back and forth match. But buddy, if you are the one of the last two, imma put ya down if I feel like it. (Which I normally don't. I'd rather have the fun "Can I find the hatch before you do." chase)

    Camping is punished by doing gens. Does it suck for the guy on the hook? Duh. Can the rest of you get away cause of it? Yes.

    Guess two things I don't do, and can give you hours of footage to prove it?

    I recommend that you take some time and chill.

    Slug = Killer might kill you all.

    No Slug = You and your teammates might escape.

    Choose the one that benefit you when you play AS KILLER!

    Yeah... by your other posts you can see that you are an entitled survivor main who doesn't understand what a killer has to deal with, so don't lie about it.
